Madhuri Dixit and Priyanka Chopra to perform in Durban

MUMBAI: The divas of Bollywood Madhuri Dixit and Priyanka Chopra are set to perform at Saifta (the South Africa India Film and Television Awards) at Durban‘s ICC on 6 September.

Chopra is a former Miss World and one of Bollywood‘s leading ladies, while Dixit is arguably Bollywood‘s best actress and dancer.

The A-list actresses are the latest to add their names to the stellar Bollywood line-up which includes Ranveer Singh and Siddharth Malhotra, tele-stars Manish Paul, Mona Singh, Apurva Agnihotri and Shilpa Agnihotri.

Dia Mirza and film-maker Karan Johar will host the awards this year. Initially, Saif was the first choice, but he was unable to attend because of a clash of dates.

To add more spice, more than 150 prominent film and TV personalities, including actors, film producers and former model John Abraham, will be walking the Saifta red carpet, along with the who‘s who of the film and television industry from both countries.

These celebrities will get a chance to rub shoulders and interact with 30 top film and TV personalities of South Africa.

Model Jaqueline Fernandes, who wowed the audience at the Saifta launch in March, along with the unconventional rapper Hard Kaur, will be back by popular demand.

With little more than two weeks until the awards, the organisers, Celebrity Locker and the Department of Economic Development and Tourism in KZN, are billing the event as the social occasion of the year.

An audience of 6,000 fans and celebrities is expected to attend the gala Saifta extravaganza, and plenty more are expected to gather on the Durban ICC Arena Concourse to watch the Bollywood stars walk the red carpet.
